A new trailer has offered a first glimpse at the second series of hit Netflix show Tiger King.
The programme, which follows the lives of big cat owners Joe Exotic and Carole Baskin, will launch on the streaming platform on November 17.
The new series will cover “newfound revelations … on the motivations, backstories, and secrets of America’s most notorious big cat owners”, Netflix said in a statement.

The first instalment of the real crime series became a global hit, with 64 million households streaming it within the first four weeks of its premiere in March 2020.
Another episode, titled The Tiger King And I, was later added to the streaming service in April 2020.
It was hosted by comedian Joel McHale, and included interviews with stars from the show including John Reinke, Joshua Dial, John Finlay, Saff, Erik Cowie, Rick Kirkman, and Jeff and Lauren Lowe.
Exotic, real name Joseph Maldonado-Passage, was previously jailed after being convicted of trying to hire two different men to kill animal rights activist Baskin.
In July a court ruled that Exotic should get a shorter sentence for his role in the murder plot.
A three-judge panel for the US Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in Denver agreed with Exotic that the court should have treated them as one conviction at sentencing because they both involved the same goal of killing Baskin.
According to the ruling, the court should have sentenced Maldonado-Passage to somewhere between 17 and a half years and just under 22 years in prison, rather than between just under 22 years and 27 years in prison.
The court ordered the trial court to re-sentence Exotic.
